Colonial Rose Cotton Matelasse Bedspread

$ 160.00



The Colonial Rose Bedspread features an all-over floral and palm leaf pattern that carefully balances the organic with the geometric.

This cotton bedspread was originally introduced in the 1950s as a classic matelasse but was later transitioned into production as a flat jacquard quilt called "Brittany" in the 1970s. Flat jacquards, lacking the signature “puff” of a matelasse bedspread, did not take off in popularity and so the pattern was discontinued.

In the early 2000’s, Bates resurrected this vintage bedspread as a lightweight matelasse in an effort to provide an affordable option for those customers seeking the quality of the matelasse bedspread but in a lighter weight fabric.

Better than in picture!

This bedspread is much prettier in person than in the photos. It is lightweight but still high quality. The color is definitely more ecru than ivory. It washes beautifully. I have it over a very lightweight down alternative blanket and it’s perfect for our southern climate.

Just what I wanted

I received my queen Colonial Rose bedspread today and it's perfect. So happy I found a good quality bedspread that suits me. The fit is perfect

Good Value

It is a lightweight bedspread, but mine withstood 5 years of daily bed making until it began to unravel where you tuck under the pillows. I am now buying another white one, so I can continue sleeping on a cloud.


I am very happy with this bedspread, Colonial Rose in linen. It goes well with a blue patchwork quilt we keep at the foot of the bed.
I noticed a pull in the fabric in the first one we received. Bates replaced it promptly at no charge. This second one is perfect!

Colonial Rose King Bedspread

We decided to buy a second king size Colonial Rose Bedspread (again in Antique) for our guest room - king size in both rooms - we love them. Everything about this bedspread is tasteful and beautiful, and I especially appreciate the fact that the weight is manageable for my arthritic hands. I like how subtle the pattern is, and love the neutral Antique tone. It matches our walls and allows for accent pillows or throws of any color. Bates Mill does beautiful work. We sometimes wish we had more beds to put their bedspreads on!
